It reminded me to surrender to the divine flow because I will be taken care of, even when everything feels out of my control.
It also taught me to be more prepared. So I bought an RV with backup supplies so I can live elsewhere whenever I need to now.
I also want to share a little backstory of what happened with my business when this wildfire turned my life upside down.
Just before it happened, I had hired someone to help me manage a new launch. We had just begun executing when I got completely distracted. The launch preparation got delayed for a month, which created a big time crunch.
We had already set launch dates with referral partners and decided not to push them. For several reasons, my business really needed the launch to happen on time.
So this was an extreme test of my commitment. How determined could I be to make it happen despite the massive hurdles I was facing?
When I returned home after being evacuated, I didn’t even have electricity for a week! I had to deal with extensive ash cleanup, which caused more damage to my health because the ash was toxic.
I relied on my team to help, I asked for more help than I had anticipated, I worked odd hours to make up for delays, I simplified my plan to make things more efficient, and focused on manifesting my vision.
It wasn’t easy. The emotional roller coaster alone would have been enough to throw most people off track, not to mention the time-consuming logistics I juggled just to survive.
I got more healing support from my holistic practitioners and practiced extreme self-care. Friends and family showed up to offer comfort and assistance as well.
I learned how strong I am and more than anything, how important community is. We can’t do this alone even when things are going smoothly.
